      One of the worst companies to work for

      Pros

      Good pay but that's nothing compared to the affect this company will have on your mental health

      Cons

      There is no management, no planning of tasks. One fine day, someone will dream up a task and just give it to you. Estimates by developers are rarely considered since everyone wants everything on priority. There is no respect for developers and they are treated like hell. As expected, no work life balance in such an environment and no boundaries between personal and work life. Opting for WFH is impossible as you keep getting pressured to come to office, even in Covid times. HR is non-existent and appear only to trouble you if you want to opt for WFH. No employee perks, no cab facility and no benefits on Ola products for employees People leave within months of joining due to the toxicity
